For example, when using the Enquiry Form we may ask you to provide your name, address, telephone numbers, email address, diet or disability information so we can adequately respond to your request. This is not an exhaustive list and we may ask for additional information as relevant from time to time.
If you do not want to receive information in this way then you should leave the relevant checkbox (“Keep in Touch” on the Feedback and Enquiry form) unchecked when we ask for your consent to do this. You may otherwise email us at any time at email@example.com to indicate that you do not want to receive information in this way from us.
PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION
As you navigate through the site, certain information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as:
- Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and web logs
INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) ADDRESSES AND WEB LOGS
An IP address is assigned to your computer each time that you access the Internet. This enables your computer to send and receive data. Generally, every time you connect to the Internet, your IP address changes. However, in some circumstances (i.e. with some broadband connections) your IP address is fixed. A fixed IP address can be associated with your particular computer and may, therefore, amount to your personal information.
Web log information is non-personal information that is collected by the computer that hosts the site each time you visit. Examples of the type of information that can be collected using your IP address and/or web log information include details of the date and time that you visited the site and the type of Internet browser and computer operating system that you used. We, or our authorised agents, use your IP address and/or web log information to collect and report aggregate information on how the site is being used and ways in which the site can be improved.

As a business, we rely on a few third parties services to make sure we are efficient and effective. For example we use WeddingDates and Best Western Meeting enquiry widgets and Ibookedonline to administer our gift voucher programme. GDPR compliance is a prerequisite in our vendor selection process.
Where we use contracted and trusted third parties to facilitate our provision of services and offers, we will also share your data with those parties for that purpose. This includes the processing and delivery of marketing communications to you, processing review and upgrade services and any other third party services engaged to perform a business support, operational or administrative function.Third parties are subject to confidentiality obligations and may only use your personal data to perform the necessary functions and not for other purposes.
